In the wake of charges of perjury and failure to report abuse for Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and VP/treasurer Gary Schultz in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky case, PSU president Graham Spanier issued a statement in full-throated support of the two administrators. Here's the statement in full:
The allegations about a former coach are troubling, and it is appropriate that they be investigated thoroughly. Protecting children requires the utmost vigilance.
With regard to the other presentments, I wish to say that Tim Curley and Gary Schultz have my unconditional support. I have known and worked daily with Tim and Gary for more than 16 years. I have complete confidence in how they have handled the allegations about a former University employee.
Tim Curley and Gary Schultz operate at the highest levels of honesty, integrity and compassion. I am confident the record will show that these charges are groundless and that they conducted themselves professionally and appropriately.
Curley and Schultz are expected to turn themselves in on Monday.
